Previous experience is preferred but not essential as full training and support will be provided by the experienced and knowledgeable wider team to enable you to succeed in the role and company.

Our Company

Dyffryn Support Agency has been supporting adults with Learning Disabilities since 1998, and the main aim of the family run business is to support individuals to become more independent and to live fulfilled and happy lives within their community. The ‘Active Support’ approach enables people with learning disabilities to develop new skills, access a wider range of opportunities and engage in activities alongside other people, building important relationships and social networks that are part of an ordinary life. The Dyffryn head office is based in sunny Rhyl, with the experienced team providing home-support across North Wales.
